                                 Medical Emergency Policy



A health emergency may occur in any school at any time. The school nurse will develop
procedures for handling life-threatening emergencies, non-life threatening emergencies, and
injuries.

   1. In the event of any evacuation of school buildings, the nurse will take student
      emergency forms and a first aid kit with him/her.

   2. In the event of any individual or group health emergency, the school nurse will be
      notified immediately. If requested by the nurse, or if the nurse is not immediately
      available, personnel who are trained in CPR and First Aid will report to the
      location of the emergency. The building principal or his/her designee will page
      them.

   3. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) /911 will be called at the direction of the nurse.

   4. If EMS needs to be called after an evacuation of the school the building principal will
      have some wireless source with which to contact the Fire Department and Police
      Department.

   5. In the event of a school wide or community wide disaster with multiple casualties
      (more than one health-related casualty occurring at one time in one site) the role of the
      school nurse is to do rapid triage, initiate care as possible, and to continue ongoing
      assessment while awaiting EMS/911 response.
